Nature Journaling Club

Come join the first meeting of the Mendocino Coast Nature Journalers on Friday, April 15 from 10AM to 12PM at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. Join artist, Mary-Ellen Campbell, once a month at the Gardens for 2 hours of Nature Journaling. The Club gathers inside of the Gardens' front entrance where Mary-Ellen will give a brief introduction to Nature Journaling, then you go out to draw and make observations then return together at 11:45AM to share your pages.

You are encouraged to use whatever materials you have... a simple sketchbook and pencil or pen to start, or if you have other materials that you like to work in, feel free to use them. This is not a teaching class, it is an opportunity for artists, nature lovers, naturalists, and citizen scientists at every level to collaborate. There will be a different theme each month for focus, such as trees, flowers, birds, insects, seascapes, etc. The only cost will be regular Gardens admission (no charge for MCBG members) please get your admission tickets in advance online to ensure availability.

If you are interested in joining the Mendocino Coast Nature Journalers, contact Mary-Ellen at camsoupy@yahoo.com and put "Nature Journalers" in the subject line. Please include your email and phone number.

Payment Information: Free with regular Gardens admission (please get an admission ticket in advance) and just plain free for MCBG members!
